A veteran that needs no further introduction, Stella McCartney has long been known for taking a stand towards sustainability within fashion, aiming at creating garments that last for a long time. The collections consist of as much organic cotton as possible, whilst Stella McCartney continues to explore new eco materials to work with. Also, Stella McCartney has become known for taking a stand for animal rights. The brand use neither fur nor leather in her collections, which, besides the most obvious, has its environmental reasons.

With social commitment at the core of its business, accessory brand De Gris manages to be one of few luxury brands to take social and environmental responsibility rather seriously. Working with non-profit organisation Haïti Futur, De Gris supports the social and economic development for artisians in Haiti. Through implementing legislation based on local standards and by valuing long-term partnerships, the brand makes sure to practice fair labor.

EKYOG is a French fashion brand that takes all ethical and social aspects into consideration in its production chain. The company has strict ethical policies, including both how the garments are produced and treated, as well as the treatment of the workers. The clothes are made from organic and natural materials, soft fabrics that are nice to your skin. Also, through its project Ekyog Terre, parts of the revenue go back to the locations of production, supporting the social and economic development of the local communities.
